Hello all of you amazing farmers market community members and local food activists!!  We thank you for your support and commitment to eating sustainably grown, local fruits and vegetables.  Did you know that by supporting local farmers, you are in fact, making a commitment to the environment?  What does supporting local small sustainable farmers have to do with it?  Everything!!  As land stewards, local sustainable farmers care for the land using less water per acre than most commercial farms, they nurture and care for the native habitat  and embrace diversity seeing value in a healthy ecosystem working with nature to find solutions.  Most farmers at the farmers and vendors at the market are from Sonoma County!

 

With mask recommendations still in place, please be sensitive to those in our community who are taking extra precautions.  If you don’t have a mask, please give them space.
